I have spent 30 years in the travel industry and loved every step of the way. I have the pleasure of combining my passion with my career.

Exotic sites, ancient cultures, new traditions and idiosyncrasies are all part of travel discoveries.  I love it all. I was fortunate to discover the wider world after being hired as an office bookkeeper with American Express Travel. That exposure was all I needed to have my passion opened up to the wonders of travel. There was excitement and discovery which touched my soul.

I  quickly worked myself into becoming a travel counselor. I gained experience, connections and first hand knowledge of some of the most amazing and iconic travel destinations. Of course, there were the most visited capitals and cities in Europe and the Baltic, but there were also the exotic landmarks and monuments of Petra, Great Wall of China, the Atacama Desert, Easter Island, Copper Canyon and so many places that just blew my mind away.

A few years ago I left Amex and took a year off to travel further,  including to my native country of Chile, Japan, El Salvador and Israel among others.          

As a hands on leisure travel planner, I am equally comfortable whether communicating online or for those special trips where you want to meet face to face with a professional.

My expertise in Latin America and my partnership with hotels, cruises and tour operators help assure you a trip of a lifetime. I speak fluent Spanish making it a breeze to communicate with people from many countries.

Travel is my passion and I am ready to show that you in ways that only a professional can.
